Nitro N50-610-EM11 Gaming PC w/ Core™ i5-10400F, 8GB, 512 SSD , GTX 1660 Super, Wifi + BT, Windows 10 Home
It has performed astoundingly thus far and appears equipped to serve me for both gaming and work purposes for years to come. If anyone is curious about specific games: - Valorant runs flawlessly - Fortnite runs very smoothly and upwards of 144 frames but I cap it at that (expect it to be able to run 180-190 uncapped on competitive settings) - warzone runs very smoothly (but taking the limited storage into account I would recommend not downloading warzone unless you have external storage) I'm still trying others but I don't expect any less than exceptional results from them either.
While I recognized this before I decided on the purchase, the 8GB of RAM is quite limiting. Now as I write this review, with only 4 google chrome tabs and the task manager open, the CPU is utilizing 58% of its memory or ~4.5GB from the inherent tasks the PC runs. This could potentially be detrimental if I am writing a research paper that requires me to have all of my references open (can be up to 50 tabs of research I refer back to while writing) in addition to work in my other classes. This is why I would recommend anticipating this and knowing you might want to fill the unoccupied slots. Regarding this, I was wondering if anyone could clarify what the specifications of the RAM the PC uses are so I could fill the unoccupied memory slots in the future.
Would definitely recommend if you're aiming for a budget in the ballpark of 1300 because this comes with a keyboard and mouse but you'll want a new monitor if your current one doesn't run above 75Hz (cause there's no point in having a build of this grade and using a mediocre monitor). However, if your overall budget is closer to $1500 you can get the same PC except with 16GB of RAM and an RTX 2060 for $1300 in its current sale price (before the monitor). In general, a super solid PC that I anticipate I'll be using for upwards of 5 years (granted I may upgrade some parts depending on what the system allows to be replaced).
